Spray drift of pesticides away from the target is an important and costly problem facing both commercial and private applicators. Drift causes many problems including:

1. damage to susceptible off target sites,

2. a lower rate than intended which can reduce the effectiveness of the pesticide, wasting pesticide and money, and
